The Turkish textile sector intends to increase exports by roughly one billion dollars by 2021. Ahmet ksüz, Chairman of the Board of the THB (Istanbul Textile and Raw Materials Exporters’ Association), assessed the textile sector in 2020. The sector’s primary agenda items were sustainability and climate change.
According to Ahmet ksüz, sustainability is critical for firms in the textile and clothing industries. The Turkish textile industry’s 2021 schedule includes a fabric show in England and Russia, a home textile delegation in the United States, and meetings and delegations in Poland and other European nations. They will continue to work in the sector’s sustainable expo in 2021. They will continue to work in 2021 to meet the sector’s long-term export objectives.
Ahmet ksüz stated that the ‘Tercihim Tekstil Mühendislii’ project, which is critical in terms of skilled human resources, was a huge success and that it will be continued in 2021. It should be noted that the rankings improved as a result of this initiative, and the textile engineering department’s ratings neared those of the previous year. “We’ll pay greater attention to the young folks.” In reality, we are considering a different approach.
“We will place a greater emphasis on young people. Indeed, we are considering not only universities but also high schools and technical high schools.”
